Taking inspiration from the Tekela v2 football boot, New Balance have launched the FuelCell Tekela, a performance-hybrid trainer that borrows tech from its on-pitch sibling, combining it with energy-returning FuelCell technology. What we’ve got here then is an off-pitch training shoe that boosts propulsion while providing the added stability and support of a boot. Sounds good.

Combining the worlds of football and running is something that we don’t see all that often, the two worlds existing separately despite their obvious similarities. But New Balance have decided to bring the two together, combining the best of both worlds for an off-pitch performance trainer that adopts more than just the colourway of the first Tekela v2.

The FuelCell Tekela features a responsive full-foot FuelCell midsole, along with the brand's signature Kinetic stitch technology, boosting propulsion and energy return, while offering a sleek and breathable fit. Make no mistake, like the Tekela v2, this trainer has been built for speed. As well as incorporating the upper of the boot with the same K-Stitch technology for added structure and support, the high rebound FuelCell formulation is new and improved, delivering a unique underfoot feel and springy responsiveness, perfect for getting some miles in away from the training ground.
